About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Come find out why we love our camp, the lake, and the North Country so much. Whether it's quiet evenings in a rocking chair on the screened in porch watching the moon rise over the lake, or for the fun and adventures the lake and the Adirondack North Country have to offer, this camp has and does it all. The fall colors are spectacular in the North Country and seeing them by boat from the lake is something special.
Built in 1939 by my Grandfather, modernized in the 80's, now it's available for you to enjoy. I live on the property. I have a separate apartment, so you can see as little or as much of me as you like. I'm there to be your tour guide, boat captain, watersport instructor for wakeboarding, waterskiing, stand up paddleboarding, and tubing, leading day hikes and beautiful road bike rides, or just in the background as your invisible caretaker making sure everything goes smoothly. I grew up spending summers at the camp and it's by far one of the most beautiful and fun places in the world.
Wake up in the queen bed to the sound of waves lapping at the shoreline in the master bedroom. Then coffee at the kitchen table overlooking the lake. The second bedroom has twin beds and is private and quiet. The kids room is just that, with bunk beds, 2 single beds and their own tv, board games and fun, but trust me, they won't be doing anything other than sleeping in there after all there is to do during the day at the camp. Rain or shine there is always something to do. Mornings, get up early and cut up the glassy water before anyone else. Then a bike ride over rolling hills along the lake, or a hike up Pocomoonshine, paddle out to Schuyler island for a secluded picnic,swimming and tubing in the afternoon. For the less adventurous, shopping in Lake Placid, take the ferry over to Burlington for the day, or head up to Montreal, Canada's largest city. Don't forget your passport! Rainy days are nice too. Explore Ausable Chasm and raft down the Ausable river, Parc Safari and waterpark is just over the border an hour away. At the end of the day cool down on the screened in porch, or warm up in front of the large fireplace in the living room. Roast marshmellows over a bonfire on the beach, then lay back and count shooting stars. Life at the camp is great. Come and find out for yourself.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1939

About the owner: I spend my winters in Tahoe teaching skiing at Squaw Valley USA. I spend my summers at the camp teaching wakeboarding, waterskiing, stand up paddleboarding, leading bike rides and day hikes. I also know how to relax and enjoy the scenery and serenity of wherever I'm at.

Why the Owner Chose Keeseville, NY, USA:
My family has been on Lake Champlain for over 100 yrs. We've all traveled all over the world, but always end up back at the camp. This is not an overly developed part of the lake. It's still just many of the same families from the 30's.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Take advantage of me. I know the North Country and all it has to offer and want to share it with you. My motorboat is available. I love to take people out tubing or for a lake tour. I also teach wakeboarding and water skiing. I have a separate apartment on the property and can also remain invisible. This is your vacation. whatever works best for you.
